"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:3-5

About Me

Oregon, United States
I am a happy, Christian, wife and post-homeschooling mother. I have spent the last several years homeschooling and now I am "adjusting" to a new season of life as "empty nester". In 2010 we moved to be Host/Caretakers at a Bible Camp. We look at our ministry here as preparing the way for the gospel to be shared as well as encouraging believers in their daily walk. I am a farmgirl at heart and love the country, I love gardening and food preserving. I also, love tea parties!! I also have a Titus 2 heart and want to share with anyone willing to listen and learn. I love having friends over and teaching them how to make bread or put up pickles. And as we work, I love to encourage them to love their husbands and their children and to be Keepers at Home and all that implies and I love that you let me do that here!! Hope you enjoy visiting my farm and walking through a journey in life with me.......I hope at some point in time I can encourage you in your walk and in your home..........

More Canning........

Done with all my peaches and done with a few plums that were brought over! Have 10 quarts of peaches, 2 quarts of peach juice and some pints of peach butter! Then there are 5 quarts of plum juice and several pints, etc. of peach-plum jam! Some of the juice will be saved for the Holidays to mix with maybe apple juice and something sparkling!! Some will be made into beautiful jelly, later when I have more time, but hopefully in time for Tea!!

So....I did another experiment!! When you use a steam juicer to make juice, you are left with alot of pulp in the basket. I usually throw that away thinking it wouldnt have much flavor after just taking all the juice out of it, I always really hated throwing it out!! Well, I made some peach-plum jam this time and it is good!
I also did some of the jam with wax.....did you know as wax cools if you whip it, you get a "cloud" of wax for the topping....These will get bows tied around them to sell at my Anne Tea that is coming soon!!

Ok, so this has nothing to do with canning......Look at this huge Herb Bread!! All you have to do to make it is ad a good bunch of herbs, I use my Italian Seasoning, here I made two rounds instead of loaves....they were Yummy!!
